A 0.75L bottle from local K-Market. Quite foamy one. Pale large head. Pale slightly hazy colour. Some hints of lemon in the nose. Mild hoppiness. Slightly apple taste. Fruity. A good wit.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Explosive gusher. Light yellow color, low white head. Very lemony, tart aroma with light wheat. Sweet, lemony, spicy flavor. Way too cloying and spicy. Rather thin body. Ok, but not really a good example of the style.

330 ml bottle. Was difficult to pour it to the glass, too much head. Aroma is quite thin, but nice. Strong fruity taste, which is actually a nice thing with this one. Other characteristic is watery. Really mixed messages from this wit. Complex one. Have to taste it again to get a full proof what it is. Left me unsettled, but not unsatisfied.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brown, 330ml
Appearance: When I started to pour this beer, the head filled up the whole tumbler, it was very hard to pour it easily into the glass due to enormously huge head, the lacing is quite impressive too, the head is not as dense and rather thinner than in regular German Weizen beer, body is hazy, lemony yellow, bright and very vivid, intensive saturation.
Aroma: The prominant aroma of coriander, peach, pear, orange peal, candid sugar, gingerroot, dough, cakes, fresh wheat, yeasts, gentle malty background, pine tree and light and light bread, very prominant, gentle hoppyness, folwery, lemon tilting towards lime, quite heavy yeastyness, vanilla, licorice, perfume, banana, powder sugar, juicyness and freshness with accompaining, wheat, malt.
Flavour: Very nice complex and perfectly balanced, peach, candid ornage peal, moderate to high yeastyness, wheat, malted barley hidden at the background, coriander, yeasty, nice highly aromatic hoppy nose, especially flowery, fresh baked cookies, grainy, bready, note of lemon and vanilla stick. Finish duration is moderate in lenght.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is smooth, carbonation on palate is very lively with comfortable accidity, finish feel is moderately astringent with gentle alcoholic warmth.

330 ml bottle. Finland.
Dark orange colour and massive head. Probably a bit past the BBE. BBE not mentioned. Sweet fruity, citrus aroma. Sweet flavour is fruity. Quite like Belgian ales. Well carbonated.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Poirotti Kallio, Helsinki)
Slight gusher. Orange, hazy, lively head. Dry, slightly hoppy and white peppery aroma, but some sweetness too, and wheaty. Not as thin as wits can be. Slightly orangey. Finish is light and wheaty, some dry hoppiness too. Very delicate, but not gay at all. Doesn’t get boring down the glass - if anything each sip improves. Overall rating indicates how pleasurable this was, despite the modesty of the individual components.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gusher. Massive-bubbled head dying swiftly. Quite a heady unmalted barley fruitiness on the snout, pepper, lemon, pineapple touches, wood. Tripelish alcohol heat and yeast, nibble of dryness, unsubtle coriander, orange rind. Bit of a feeble fake bitterness sweetener-like finish. Not wholly convincing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Lightly hazy golden, rich head. Strong coriander aroma. Sweet and juicy, lightly yeasty. Coriander and curacao dominates. Soft and drinkable, to a tad sweet.
